Just five games after he took the job, Queens Park Rangers boss Paul Hart has left the club "by mutual consent", in the cliched nomenclature of football management, and will be temporarily replaced by assistant Mick Harford. Relations between the manager and certain of the playing staff are reported to have broken down over Hart's team selections; when influential players, such as Adel Taarabt, complained about being left on the bench, the club hierarchy decided to defenestrate the gaffer. Hart is the tenth manager to have tried and failed with the Hoops since Flavio Briatore and his wealthy chums took over the club in 2006. None of them have lasted more than eight months, and QPR remain in the middle of the Championship. Coincidence?
